My wife and I went here for our anniversary and it was incredible! The room (second floor of the cabin) was more than we could have asked for with an in-room nespresso machine and delicious cookies waiting for us upon arrival. However, the crowning experience was breakfast! Jennifer is an amazing chef and the breakfast was the best I’ve ever had....homemade granola, fresh fruit, grits with spinach and bacon and—to top it all off—smoked salmon egg & cheese on a brioche bun! Highly recommended.

Breakfast far exceeded any from any other B&B’s we’ve stayed at.
Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that our breakfast exceeded your expectations. I only wish that some of the other area's could have done the same. If you would like to call the Inn and let us know how we might have done a little better, we are happy for any and all feedback! Jennifer Goodman Innkeeper

First time staying here and couldn’t have asked for a better place to spend our anniversary weekend. The breakfast is delicious and the little treats left in our room each day were scrumptious!! Also, the linens feel like you’re floating on a cloud. Loved it!
Thank you for celebrating your special weekend with us! And thank you for your kind review. Maybe we will see you next year! Jennifer Goodman Innkeeper

We’ve stayed at a number of nice B&B’s throughout the country, but this one tops the list for charming accommodations and delicious breakfasts and treats. The grounds are well kept with ample parking and numerous outdoor gathering spots where you can enjoy the lush and peaceful surroundings. Close to local attractions and just minutes from the airport (without all the noise). Definitely a great place to stay!!

My wife and I stayed at Willis Graves B&B for 4 nights in the William Rouse room. The rooms were absolutely beautiful, and everything was extremely clean. Jennifer and the staff were very courteous and helpful. My wife and I agreed that our favorite part of our stay was the breakfasts! Jennifer is a fantastic chef, and graciously accommodated my special dietary needs. I highly recommend Willis Graves B&B for any reason, just for an unwind or a special occasion.

Ultimately, the dream of owning “something" was always in the back of my mind as. While doing an Internet search of bed and breakfast properties, I found Willis Graves was up for sale. I knew I had to visit. I had a wonderful stay last November and decided that this felt like home. Everything has come full circle. Stay up-to-date on my journey with this beautiful property via my blog http://willisgraves.blogspot.com/ I’ll share my family, food, and stories about my experiences running the Inn.
